Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate and "voter suppression" truther Stacey Abrams (D) put her hypocrisy on full display during a recent MSNBC appearance. Abrams, who has spent the last three years insisting that she won the 2018 governor race when she was defeated fairly by Governor Brian Kemp (R-GA), said that "repeating lies" about elections poses a danger. 

"We can't keep repeating the people who are posing the lies. One of the most effective ways to combat disinformation is to refuse to repeat it and to instead focus on telling the truth. These vote restrictions are a concerted effort to hold on to power," Abrams said. 

Meanwhile, Abrams continues to advocate for the For the People Act, which is dead-on-arrival in the United States Senate. The legislation would give full jurisdiction over elections to the federal government, instead of individual states.

While advocating for the right to vote and fair elections, Abrams still has yet to concede a gubernatorial race that she lost fair and square three years ago.
